you're with us on this important day, everybody, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. doug mcelway is keeping an eye on these developments live on capitol hill. what's going on right now, doug? >> reporter: well, jon, this plans to be a very, very big day, indeed. one of our producers on the house side was just standing outside a republican caucus meeting, and one of the last things he heard was some voice, he doesn't know who, saying, all right, let's go out there and kick the blank out of them, that after speaker boehner admonished his caucus to get their as in line, rhyming with basses. beginning at 12:30 this afternoon, the first of debates and votes, the first on a rule itself. assuming that passes, it moves on to debate of the boehner bill. what are the chances of passage? we've got a graphic you should keep in mind as you watch the debate this afternoon. there are 240 republicans, boehner needs 217. he can only afford to lose 23, and if it passes the house, it's going to pass by a squeaky, close margin if it does at all. it faces a highly uncertain future in the senate,
gop white house hopeful backing the debt increase is former utah governor jon huntsman, who's called the boehner bill a good step. >> the boehner plan at least begins that process of cutting, that i think is terribly important. the president has shown no leadership. he doesn't have a plan on the table. my opponents in this race haven't even come up with what they support. >> but all the republican presidential candidates do support spending cuts and oppose tax hikes. sarah palin calls the boehner bill a gop retreat while she accuses the president of trying to scare voters into accepting more government spending, but she's not actually above political threats herself and she warned republicans on facebook today that everyone she talks believes in contested primaries. she sides with tea partiers against a debt hike and will join a tea party rally in iowa around labor day weekend, right about the time she says she'll make a final decision on whether she's running or not. bret? >> bret: makes you go hmm. carl, thank you. a spokesperson for new jersey governor chris christie says the gove
hour by hour and tonight, at last, some news on one of the plans. abc's jon karl is on capitol hill with that. jon? >> reporter: diane, there is some real drama going on right now here in the house. they were supposed to be voting on john boehner's deabt ceiling bill. that is delayed. john boehner's office is right down there, and he is down there trying to get the votes he needs to pasasthis bill. he's not there yet. this is the bill that could increase the debt ceiling by about $900 billion, only about six months worth. democrats don't like that, because it would force the president to come back and go through this all over again. but what boehner is finding is that a lot of those tea party republicans don't want to vote for this. he has put his speakership on the line, saying that he cannot lead if they don't support him. so, the question now is, diane, will he get the votes to pass the republican plan? >> can he get his republicans in line? jon karl, standing by, watching it all. and, of course, while they battle it out on the hill, on capitol hill, there is a secret scramble be
